PATHOGENESIS IN AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION

The complement system is a key player in pathogenesis of age related macular degernation (AMD). Diana gave a talk at the Marburger Ophthalmologischer Disput (MOD) 2022 to explain characteristics of AMD pathophysiology. Find the link to her great talk here:

Coursera is a website that offers free courses about various topics. The link above will guide you to a free course about the fundamentals of immunology.

The german society of immunology offers immunology courses and supports young scientists in research.

SciFiMed is our Europe-wide research project. Eight partner focus on investigating the function of the factor H related proteins and creating a diagnostic assay for bedside application in factor H associated diseases.

Collaboration brings us forward in all fields of our life, especially in research. We will bring WoL to the University of Marburg to  explore the new way to build relationships that help you achieve a goal, develop a skill, or explore a new topic. Instead of networking to get something, we will invest in relationships by making contributions over time, including your work and experiences that you make visible.

After our 2022 WoL course we resumed what we learned from the 12 weeks we spent and worked together, which prerequisites a good goal for WoL should fulfill and we put together some exemplary WoL goals for the upcoming WoL course.

THE COMPLEMENT SYSTEM DESCRIBED IN AN EASY WAY

The complement system is part of the innate immune system of our body. With over 50 proteins involved in the cascade it is a challenge to fully understand how pathogens are elimanted by it. This video visualizes the proteolytic cascade and explains its functions in the human body:
